PRESENCE AND POWER

300 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

ELEVATE YOUR TEACHING

The 300 Hour advanced yoga teacher training is open to teachers holding a minimum of a 200 hour certification. Teachers that successfully complete the requirements of the 300 hour teacher training are eligible to register as 500 hour teachers through Yoga Alliance International. 

The 300 hour teacher training is completed by accumulating hours through the modules of your choice and may be completed in any order. Students are required two BODY modules, two MIND modules, and two METHOD modules.

 

Students may complete the program in their own time and there is no time-limit. The intention behind the modules is that you would leave, digest the teachings, apply them to your life and practice, and in time to your students. Each module is a stand alone training and may be taken independently to advance your study regardless of your enrollment in the advanced teacher training program. 

Upon completion of the 300 hour program and all graduate requirements, teachers may apply to receive their 300 hour certification. Teachers are required to submit their training log, all homework assignments, and a $100 non-refundable application fee to process their certification process.

 

Submitting the initial application alerts our team to your intention to complete the advanced program with us.
